A CRISP fan is glad she kept her eyes peeled after spotting a soggy potato in her packet.
Helen Reed, 33, grew suspicious when the first cheese and onion snacks she pulled out were damp.
The packet, made by REAL Crisps, promised “bags of character” but when Helen emptied it on the table at work she found a weepy spud inside instead.
She said: “The bag didn’t feel heavy, it felt normal.
“The potato was quite a decent size — it was a bit bigger than a golf ball.
“It was soggy and squishy and smelled a bit funny.

“I didn’t eat any of them as they were all soggy. I remember thinking, ‘How on earth has that got through?’.”
The face-painting business owner wrapped the stray tuber in kitchen roll and brought it home to show her gas engineer husband Graham, 34.
She went on: “I said, ‘Look what I found in a bag of crisps’, and he said, ‘Eugh, put it in the bin’.
“It’s quite funny the brand’s called REAL as well. You can’t get realer than a potato in a bag of crisps.”

Helen contacted the manufacturer and received a few free bags of different flavours — which she happily ate.
Helen, of Aberford, West Yorkshire, said: “It’s not put me off, I just found it funny — things happen. It could have been a lot worse. At least it was a potato.”
REAL Crisps was contacted for comment.
